So pleased to have you here. I hope you find some light-hearted entertainment and inspiration as you read on.

Travel for me is about staying in one place and getting to know it as well as I can. I’m not checking countries off a list, I’m building experiences and knowledge of different cultures and people. I guess it’s not a surprise I put the travel on hold to study social anthropology! To find out a bit more about me and my story, head over to my About page. But if you’re ready to get the adventure started, this page will help you out.
